On the third ball of the final over, Dhoni slammed a delivery from Arshdeep Singh in the deep cover region and Mitchell instantly started running.

"Probably 50-60 runs short, the pitch wasn't great when we batted, but it got better later on. With the impact rule as well, we were well short," Gaikwad said in a post-match presentation.
